Is there a way to install
xbindkeys on rhel 6 based distro?
I want to bind keys from my mouse button to run a script.

The package is not contained in the normal repositories but it is in li.nux.ro.
So, enable the repo (and needed EPEL by Fedora):
yum install epel-release rpm -Uvh https://li.nux.ro/download/nux/dextop/el6/x86_64/nux-dextop-release-0-2.el6.nux.noarch.rpm
Then you can do
yum update yum install xbindkeys
PS: Please note that whenever you enable a new repository it makes the system a little less secure. However, EPEL and li.nux.ro seem to be well established and probably OK.
